I need you to develop some software for me. I would like this software to be developed using .NET. Our existing website forms need to be updated/fixed. There are different forms for online customer quotation requests, online ordering, order administration with invoicing and statement functionality and data capturing for the purpose of creating property valuation reports. All these forms are based on one master form and they are dynamic in that some fields change in accordance with the user's input.
Then there are smaller form for user profile management and the contact page.
I would like to provide a deeper insight into my specifications as I see that most bidders have indicated a turnaround time of 30 days which I cannot imagine being realistic. Therefore, I am uploading the project spec's in Excel format for you to see exactly what this is about.
The core of the project is represented by the worksheet “order RC”, from which the other forms “GET A QUOTE”, “quote” and “order RC (contractor)” are derived. The tricky part about this form is that the selections made in the first 5 dropdown fields will determine which fields are displayed for the remainder of the form. The form is basically built, but my current developer has had to abandon the project due to personal reasons and before he was able to get the dynamics of the form right and make some additions which I had requested.
The other major challenge is represented by the worksheet "E-mail (quotation)" as this e-mail is required to dynamically display the fee modules as per the drop-down selections made for the first 5 fields of the "GET A QUOTE" form. This e-mail has also been coded, but we require some changes to it, as we have expanded our range of services since it was coded.
(There are also other e-mails to be generated when certain action buttons are clicked, but their text is static.)
The front-end and backend are intended to be responsive to mobile devices but has not been perfected yet, so this also needs to be factored into the scope of work.
And then there are the PDF documents which are generated by the forms, i.e. "PDF invoice", "PDF credit note", "PDF statement" and "report (RC ...)", which have also been coded but with some tweaks required.
Please read the worksheet "Preamble" first, as this offers some guidance on how best to tackle the specification.
I realise that it will be difficult to cost the project without knowing exactly what is already in place, therefore, I would suggest that you quote as if it were to be built from scratch and then we at least have a price and time cap for the project by which to compare quotes. (In case you are of the opinion that it would be easier to build the whole project from scratch and on a different coding platform because the existing .NET coding might be outdated, then please do not hesitate to make your suggestions.)
I would propose to the first milestone payment of 15% for when the "order RC" form is completed, including the PDF report ("report (RC ...). Please let me know if this is agreeable and the expected delivery time for this component as well as for the entire project to be completed.
Thanks & best regards,
